is playing it coy. vice president joe biden not at all coy. that is not his personality. he is making waves of his own. announcing he will travel to the key state of iowa next month. bob cusack joins us, managing editor of "the hill." bob, good to see you. clinton has 51-point lead in the latest poll over other contenders. whereas voters consistently are pretty divided in their opinion over joe biden. so i mean is he running in event she doesn't? and, you know, even if that's the case it is going to be a struggle for him, isn't it? >> it is. every vice president, unless you're dick cheney wants to the president. biden is doing the things to prepare for a run. i think it is highly unlikely he would run against hillary clinton. the narrative for joe biden he has been getting deals done in washington. in very partisan time he was the key player in getting the fiscal cliff deal done but he does not have the fund-raising ability or the persona that hillary clinton does. but, clearly, hillary clinton is aiming to run. she recently joined twitter. it is going to happen unless there's a health issu
not made a decision. and joe biden repeated that line today. the president again repeating that to respond to this deployment of chemical weapons is in america's core self interest, and the president said the syrian government carried these attacks out. if you circumstance -- circle a couple of dates on the calendar here, you mentioned those un inspectors. it's very clear that the administration or any allied coalition is not going to initiate an attack while those un inspectors are on the ground. then tuesday the president is scheduled to leave the country. he was going to go see putin, and that got changed, instead he is going sweden before going to the g20 meeting. a lot of folks think the president might want to consult with leaders at the g20. others say that is not likely to have this hanging in the air while they are talking about the economy. also another wild-card here, if the british go wobbly in his term on this, and parlment does balk, then that throws another twist and angle into the potential timing. >> mike, tell us precedent for this. >> well, i think the most direct preced
that page the more that activity ramps up. we have joe biden who will focus on his 2016 hopes. the senator from minnesota is going to make an appearance in the state. i'm thinking the political system is starting to say, president obama, you are in our second term and you are going to become a lame duck and it looks like it will bener than later. president bush's approval ratings in 2005 were slightly above were president obama's are today. but he was engaged in the system and the system was moving. the congress had passed thus far in 2005, a trade agreement with central america, the first energy policy bill in decade, a multi-year highway bill. it was the last time the president and the congress had a multi-year funding bill. bill: you are argue he was active and relevant. >> you mentioned the approval rating. he's down 5 point in a month from july it was 47 percent. now it's up to 52. that's a jump of 5 points. >> president bush's approval ratings were low because of an unpopular war in iraq. president obama is supposedly winning the war against terrorism and the economy is recover and h
decides not to run as every sign shoes she will. joe biden wants you to know he's available. >> she was supposed to be the inev table candidate and she lost iowa and the obamas, i remember michelle obama. if we lose in iwashings this is over. and it was a huge loss for her. and ground to make up for her. everyone is assuming she will. >> major miscalculation her campaign and a lesson by. this and that's why cruz and others are out there. you can't skimp on iwashings you leave the door open as rick sanatorium did in 2012, that you can have a dark horse candidate emerge in iowa. hillary clinton would not compete and make a push and then she lost and competed there and it was to the unending detriment to her campaign. she is running a inevitability campaign. it is ineffable and she will be a contender. and the danger for her and probably underestimated on the democratic side. running as someone who has been in and of washington for 25 years is not in sync as where the electorate mind is. her competency campaign may end up sounding like more of the same. >> and it is interesting theed i
will run against her. if not one, he may very well run against her. joe biden is in iowa this past weekend trying to build support as incoming vice president. i think she is by far the strongest democrat. i do think at the end of the day she will win the nomination. if everything goes right and her health hold up. but when she gets into a general election, she has to basically defend this administration. she want can't walk away from it and defend the administration her husband had for eight years. >> what do you see, joe, as potential pit falls for her? >> look, i think if 2016 is a change election, this time she has to jump in front of it and push the change that a first woman presidency would bring. if she didn't really embrace that in 2008, i think that was a huge mistake given where barack obama was coming is the change candidate, so also she just -- they made a bunch of mistakes where they just avoided caucus states. and it lost all of them to obama. that won't happen again. so i think, i think the defeat of 2008 may well have prepared her and her team to understand what they need to
the former first lady beating the rest of the potential 2016 presidential field by a mile poor joe biden, when the president bid farewell to ms. clinton in late january, it was quite the sendoff i think hillary will go down as one of the finest secretary of states we have h it has been a great collaboration other the last four years. i'm going it miss her. i wish she was sticking around. she has logged in so many miles i can't begrudge her take it easy for a little bit. i want the country to appreciate just what an extraordinary role she has played. >> now, that's all very sweet, but is it true? forget party politics for a element no. was mrs. clinton, objectively speaking, really a great secretary of state? it's glaringly apparent that our relationship with russia is in tatters which she began by botching the translation of the word reset on a button she handed russian counterpart and that was back in 2008. after giving russia what it wanted on the eastern european missile defense field. russia repaid us by continuing to help the asyrian regime and cruelly banned american adoptions. as
and bear arms. on this issue, vice president joe biden -- the nice thing is that you don't need a punchline. [applause] you simply say his name and people naturally laugh. but vice president joe biden had some advice for all of us. if somebody is attacking your home, just go outside with a double barrel shotgun and fire both arrows into the air. which is very good advice. if it happens you're being attacked by a flock of geese. on guns, following the horrific tragedy in newtown, president obama came out saying, not let's go come down on the violent criminals like a ton of bricks. but instead, the president said, we will use this as an excuse to go after the constitutional rights of law- abiding citizens. in washington, the momentum was entirely with the president on this. conventional wisdom was that this was unstoppable. and i will tell you that three senators signed a very simple and short note to hear he read that said we will -- harry reid that said we will filibuster anything that prohibits our right to bear arms. [applause] the important thing was not the letter or the filibuster. it
with that. >> exactly. >> thanks. >> new this morning, vice president joe biden's son is under going medical test. a spokesman says beou biden became week. the vice president accompanied his son. the attorney general in delaware suffered a mild stroke in 2010. >> bradley manning will be sentenced by a military judge in maryland. convicted last month on 20 charges involving classified documents and video he gave to the web site wikileaks. federal prosecutors asked for a 60 year term. >>> the u.s. soldier who killed 16 afghan villagers last year is expected to plead guilty to avoid the death penalty. set to begin later this morning at a joint base in washington. 9 afghan villagers have been thrown in to testify. >>> a man who went online to order a safe got a lot more than he asked for. >> it contained more than 200 pounds of drugs. the safe is empty now but wasn't when it was delivered to his home back in mid june. it was loaded with 285 pound outside of marijuana. probably direct from mexico. >> the thing about it is that you need to know, it was made in mexico. it was made by inmate labor a
's crucial to determining what punishment as i think joe biden called it, and the french ministers have been saying. there must be a consequence, a price to be paid for having done this. in principle i agree with that. but we must be sure we're punishing the right person, and -- and i'm taking the purely intellectual or perhaps slightly political point that it's in everyone's interest that the indication of that person, that authority that is held responsible, be not simply on the basis of gut feeling or the best -- you know, that's what we think. we need it as hard evidence to show the world the proof. and once that is done, the picture will look very different indeed. >> tonight there are indications president obama has a number of options to deal with syria. patty has more. >> reporter: the obama administration says it will respond to this, but the goal, they insist is not to get rid of the syrian president but to send him a message. >> it is not our policy to respond to this transgression with a regime change. >> reporter: they say no decision has been made, but it seems likely the respo
congressional okay, joe biden in 2007 said he would personally push for impeachment charges. the obama-biden team has had an evolution in the last few years about getting a congressional okay. >> interesting word for it. ed henry, thank you. the united nations says it wants western leaders to wait for a report from the u.n. weapons inspectors before taking any military action. those inspectors went back to the scene of the alleged war crime today we're told. "fox report's" chief correspondent jonathan hunt live now. jonathan, the u.s. does not necessarily need the u.n.'s permission for this. >> no, it doesn't, but like president bush in the run-up to the iraq war president obama might feel that it is worth being seen to try to get some sort of consensus at the united nations security council. u.n. officials certainly made the point today that they believe that effort is worthwhile and indeed necessary. listen. >> i do know that president obama, the american administration, are not known to be trigger happy. what they will decide, i don't know. >> the problem with bringing in the securi
of a key international norm that barack obama and joe biden and other world leaders have come together several years ago to prevent and to try to prohibit and create a global allergy against the proliferation and use of weapons of mass destruction, and they believe that not to respond to this case -- it's a very different case than the ongoing questions about assad and internal instability and, you know, the fight for syria. this is about a global norm, and that is why they are going to basically punish parts of the syrian government and try to create a capacity. that's odd about this is that they are basically telegraphing to the world that they're going to do it, and one will have to assess after the fact whether or not syria was able to harden, move, or hide assets that they fear will be attacked. it's not often, i mean, if you were in a perfect military planning incident, you would attack without notice. the obama administration is giving very, very wide notice, in facts an attack is coming in my view. >> steve clemons. washington editor at large for the "atlantic" magazine and som
to challenge her, joe biden on the democratic side and who is going to emerge on the republican side and the news media is going to be consumed with that and the press room behind me is going to be thinner and thinner and thinner for those daily bri briefings, less and less interest. so, it's enormous gamble. i can't help but think that the president and his aides looked at this and said, okay. there isn't a lot of support for this. we are getting some blow-back in congress. i still have a hard time thinking they couldn't just go ahead and do what they were going to do and let congress sort it out when they do finally, get around to returning to town. so i can't help come to the conclusion that they think they can win this vote, they think it's going to expose and exploit further divisions within the republican party. but again, getting back to the essential questions of life and death and national security here, for the president to repeatedly say that this is something in the core national interest of the united states and then to put it off for two weeks, you know, militarily, i d
campaign for president of the united states. in 2008 she campaigned for for barack obama and joe biden, and she was nominated by president elect obama to be secretary of state. i do not think any of us have lived to see a woman achieve a greater set of goals and a woman who has done more for all of us than secretary hillary rodham clinton. with that, i give this award to hillary rodham clinton, and it is going to be accepted. [applause] >> in 2007 i was honored to serve as hillary clinton's campaign director. my entire family met her at a campaign event in may of that year. having only met hillary clinton as portrayed in media events, i was not prepared for her warm and authenticity. after exchanging greetings, she looked at her son and looked back at me to ask, how is your health care? does it cover everything you need? i am not sure i can explain the warmth her beacon of light provided. in that moment, for me, for our family, for our son, hillary clinton embodied hope, and in our brief conversation, she showed me what makes her the best public servant i believe our country has ever k
to do a town hall. also in scranton, pennsylvania with vice president joe biden. two life events we'll have on c-span for you. one in the afternoon and one a little bit later in the day. little bit more from the headlines on this, here's the washington time's write up. obama proposes federal controls on college cost. the funding formula will improve educational value. here are some of the reaction from congress. they write that lawmakers are set to debate and reauthorize the higher education act which is due to expire at the end of the year. congressman john klein of minnesota, a republican, agrees with mr. obama's of promoting innovation on college. saying it could stifle innovation. carol from ohio on the democratic line, carol what's the name of your town? caller: syo. host: what part of the state? caller: not too far from stuebenville? host: is it worth it? caller: yes it is. my son is a nurse and my son did music and teaching. right after 9/11 he worked 2.5 years in his apartment making videos for music for the schools. i have a comment. there was a poll in louisiana as a
matters. on wednesday vice president joe biden held a briefing for a bipartisan group of lawmakers from the house and the senate. that briefing according to a separate u.s. official covered what that person called the full range of embassy security issues, including long-term investments, and this is important here, wolf, immediate threats. now, it is worth noting here, as u.s. officials are concerned that this current threat could be coming out of the arabian peninsula and perhaps yemen, the president of yemen was just at the white house yesterday for a face-to-face meeting with president obama and, in fact, the president praised the yemeni leader for making progress, he said, against al qaeda. here is what the president had to say. >> because of some of the very effective military reforms that the president initiated when he came into this office, what we've seen is al qaeda in the arabian peninsula or aqap moved back out of territories it was controlling. >> reporter: now, add to that during his briefing with reporters, white house press secretary jay carney was asked about an uptick
happening, that killed, what we're seeing many people. vice president joe biden is saying there is is now doubt the assad regime is to blame and right now the u.s. has warships, four of them, in the mediterranean. crews missiles are ready to be fired but the obama administration has to still work out some of the details in considering how the assad regime will respond. our chief white house correspondent ed henry live at the white house with the very latest. ed, good morning to you. are they planning on getting congressional authorization first? >> reporter: it does not look like it, jamie. the situation getting worse by the hour. israel on high alert, worried about possible retaliation by the syrian regime. in the last few moments turkish foreign minister is being prepared and turkey is on high alert at this hour to protect turkish interests. vice president biden, becoming the latest and highest official here at the white house saying in fact they believe the syrian regime is responsible for that chemical weapons attack, inching to move forward on u.s. military action. remember in the 20
about rand paul, mark arabi, hillary clinton, joe biden but no paul ryan or mario cuomo. >> i just wrote about mario cuomo. data, the deduction, we have a debate about all the time almost, i feel like our reporters are very reluctant to become part of this, you know, a cottage industry of like the next presidential election the day after the last one. >> [inaudible] >> the reality is we all do it. i think right now the least, an industry not getting too far ahead of ourselves and allowing it to a certain degree to be the players. paul ryan is not doing anything to really make it look like he is running for president right now. i feel like he probably is pretty sort of keeping a lower profile than rand paul this. so i think right now certainly most of the reporting that i see has been pretty good about keeping it limited to the people who are making moves towards that. >> donald trump. [laughter] >> so, we started off early in this discussion talk about the implications for the bios of the "washington post." and with the heritage traditional media site like beckham one thing they been abl
, and it was for things to come. the next big fight we had in washington was over guns. .. >> but vice president joe biden said if someone is attacking your home, just go outside with a double-barreled shotgun and fired both barrels in the air. which is very, very good advice. if it so happens that you are being attacked by a flock of geese. [laughter] you know, on the subject of guns, following the horrific tragedy of newtown, president obama came out not saying let's stand up and go after violent criminals, not saying what protect the innocent. i think that we ought to come down on them like a ton of bricks. [applause] but instead, the president said that we will use this as an excuse to go after the constitutional rights of law-abiding citizens. i must tell you that in washington momentum was entirely with the president on this. the conventional wisdom was this was unstoppable. i will tell you three senators signed a very simple note to harry reid said that we will filibuster any legislation that undermines the right to keep in balance. [cheers] [applause] now, the important thing about that was not th

visited students at syracuse. later today on the joe biden in scranton, his hometown. i decided to stop here for a couple of reasons. number one, i have been told it is very important for me to get a speedy's while i'm here. [applause] so we are going to pick one up and try it on the road. number two, i'm excited because the great work that suny campuses like the nintendo are doing to keep costs down for hard-working students -- like binghamton are doing to keep costs down for hard-working students like you. students across the state are getting world-class higher education. that without some of the debt and financial burden that is stopping too many young people from going to college. that is what we want for all of our students and families all across the country. i've beenast month visiting towns throughout america and i have talked about, how do we secure a better bargain for the middle class and everybody trying to work their way into the middle class? we fought our way through a very brutal recession and now we're at a point where we are creating jobs, the economy is growing, ajit
